Ahhh - watermelon in the summer



Our weather has turned from rain and drizzle and 62 degrees to HOT sunny and 88 - in just two days - wow - that was quick. I am happy for the heat - happy for the sunshine - but would have done better had we eased into it. But after this spring of cold, rain, cold, rain, cold, rain and cold and rain - I'm happy for the warmer weather. I don't have anything that I must do for the next couple days until it cools a little bit - so I'll make iced tea and you may all come over and sit under my trees and enjoy the weather. So - let's have some watermelon.

It started at the quilt show in Sedro Wolley - I just got a craving for watermelon.



It started with this . . . cool colors . . .

Then there was this - ahh watermelon . . .

A corner of watermelon . . .


And a whole lot of watermelon !!

The most refreshing watermelon of the whole summer.

Love it!!! I made the same quilt a couple of years ago. It's up on the wall now, along with my watermelon placemats on the table.

Watermelon under your tree sounds wonderful, it is hot and humid here as well. Love the watermelon quilt, neat idea.

My kind of watermellon. Here on the island we must take all our garbage to the dump...that other watermellon is too heavy to bring and then carry back!
Jo, it's summer, any hot weather is a love, remember January! I'm sitting at about 100 degrees with the humidex over that and I'm not even having AC here at the cottage.
I was called a whiner yesterday....rain is coming here tonight to cool us off too!
Love the colours, very cooling!
